You were made to live in a relationship with God.
You were made by God and for God. You are loved by God. There is nothing you could ever do to make God love you more than He already does, and you can't do anything to make Him love you less.
Sin broke our relationship with God.
Sin can be described in different ways: missing the mark, being defective or off-course. Our human nature is broken.
'All of us have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.' (Romans 3:23)
Sin has wrecked everything, leaving us separated from God. The result of this separation is death and certain judgment.
'Man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.' (Hebrews 9:27)
'Those who do not know God will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord.'
(2 Thessalonians 1:8-9)
God took the first step to fix our relationship.
'God is on one side and all the people on the other side, and Christ Jesus,
Himself man, is between them to bring them together by giving His life for all mankind.' (1 Timothy 2:5-6)
'Christ died for sins once for all to bring you to God.' (1 Peter 3:18)
'To all who received (Christ), to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.' (John 1:12)
You can live the life God created you to live.
Jesus Christ, who died on a cross for our sins, is the way to God. Everyone who personally receives Christ into their lives, making Him their Lord (master), and trusting Him to forgive their sins, will be able to live the life they were born to live.
'Jesus said, "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in..."'
Will you open your heart to Jesus? Will you let Him call the shots in your life? Will you trust Him to save you?
You can pray something like this:
'Lord Jesus, please come into my life and be my Saviour and Lord. Please forgive my sins and please give me the gift of eternal life.'
'God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life;
he who does not have the Son does not have life.' (1 John 5:11-12)
